Launched in 2006, chinadialogue is a platform that creates communication across barriers of language and culture on environment and climate change. We aim to inform, educate and build consensus for fair, constructive and workable solutions. chinadialogue’s primary vehicle is chinadialogue.net (also available at chinadialogue.cn). It is a unique, bilingual website that publishes even-handedly and independently – in English and Chinese – to challenge prejudice and misunderstanding and to foster direct exchange. Access to chinadialogue is free and participation is open to all.
